What are your general comments?

"It was a very positive experience. My interview was very conversational. We talked alot about research that I had done, and he happened to know a lot about what I was doing, so he asked some fairly technical questions. He was very friendly and quite candid about the whole process, and from what other interviewees told me, most of the interviewers at Columbia have a similar style. He was also able to answer all of my questions about curriculum and other stuff. The neighborhood is fine, and right by the 1,9, and A trains, so the rest of the city is easily accessible." -Posted 10/15/2002 | Report Response
